i just bought bearclaw 24-9-11 , oh what a big mistake I did , wheelies and acceleration , rear lifting are a lot harder . ill spend some more time to ride them to be sure , im thinking of buying razr , as most recommend , should I get 20 on 10 inch rim ?( but they are 4 ply) i dont have smaller sprocket yet but im doing a lot of technical wood trail , maybe it would be better 20 inch tires for slow speed . ?

May not be able to answer this one but what size of tire did you have on the front ?

I would try a 12 or 13 tooth front sprocket with your current 24's before discounting the tires. this should put your power band back in a better range. The taller tires have the same effect as raising your gear ratio, so it just makes sence to go with a lower count sprocket, besides they are less than 20 bucks delivered to your door.

Might I suggest 22" Razr on the stock 11" rims and add a 13t... better low end torque for tight stuff at low speed. Will reduce top end a bit, but not that much. Beat the hell outta the stock rims first, then replace with better rims later... (DWT or OMF)

No, the 450r '06 or newer will fit.
